Our adult classes are the perfect way to introduce, or rediscover, the inspiring world of William Shakespeare. Together we'll explore why his remarkable plays are still being performed 400 years on.
THE BARD’S NOT THAT HARD
Launched in 2011, The Bard’s Not That Hard is the perfect way to introduce, or rediscover, the inspiring world of William Shakespeare. Together we'll explore why his remarkable plays are still being performed 400 years on.
Delivered by theatre professionals, GSC’s practical evening classes are designed to help you discover The Bard in a fun and supportive environment. Together, we explore Shakespeare’s great plays through close reading, group discussion and practical exercises in our professional rehearsal room.
“We look at Shakespeare’s choice of words, their sound, their order on the page and the visual images created – this helps create a deeper understanding of the work and also gives you an insight and appreciation into Shakespeare’s skill as a writer.” Class Member
The Bard's Not That Hard meet on a Tuesday evening, 7pm - 9pm, in the rehearsal room at GSC HQ. No experience of Shakespeare or acting necessary and all ages welcome. This is not an acting class but there will be tea and biscuits!
“I am able to appreciate and enjoy productions of Shakespeare better.” Class Member
